“I’ve been coming here about 8
years now. The one
service I come
for is the meal. And toothpaste,
socks, and a little bit of clothing.
Last year I
got a winter
coat. It
was
really nice.
I live in the
area, but
I had a stroke
so I
don’t
do much
cooking
anymore. I’m
scared to drop things.
That’s why
I sit at the end of
the
table, so
I don’t sit in the middle and
drop my tray on
someone.
I know some people here. This is
the
place where I
come to socialize
with
them. Some guys you see
they
disappear. And you never know what
happened. Sometimes it’s
sad,
because you don’t
know
where they
went.
The Good
Shepherd would be hard
to replace. I
think there would
be
more people stealing, and fights
going on. I think it
helps out a lot of
people.
Good Shepherd has a good
reputation, especially
at
Christmastime. There
are lineups
down the street. I’ve been
here for
the
Christmas dinner,
and it’s done
very well.”
Our guests are
different,
but most of them begin at
the same place.
It
starts with a meal.
Please donate today to help those
in
need this
holiday
season. Let’s start
at
the beginning. Help
us
start with a
meal!

Thank you if you’ve donated to us this Christmas season! You’ve helped someone start with a meal.
We’re nearing the end of the year, and meals are always in high demand.

“Even if I’ve had breakfast
somewhere else,
I’ll come
by here
just for the
fellowship.
It’s the only
place in
Toronto
doing food seven
days a week, twice a day.
I know guys here, and
they love me.
It’s really like Cheers here. Believe
it or not.
It really
is!
I’ve heard good things
about
their
counselling. I
haven’t had to reach
out. The
fellows in
the D.A.R.E
program here I give big thumbs up to
(Drug and Alcohol Recovery
Enrichment). Just for
actually taking
the
step to come into
such a
program.
It’s an appropriate
acronym, because
courage is doing something even
though we’re
afraid. So, kudos
to
them.
I’ve been
fortunate that they’ve
reached out to me as
a buddy. Just
meeting them here in the cafeteria.
I’ve had
nothing
but a positive
experience with Good Shepherd. It
has an extremely
good reputation on
the
street.
You can tell
from the
respect that the fellows have
here for
the
staff and
the volunteers.
It’s a respectful atmosphere, and you’ll find a brotherhood among the
clients here in the D.A.R.E program.
The amount of patience and love and
fortitude and
forbearance that the
guys have
for one another and really
helping out their fellow
buddy
in
need, it’s really good to see.” Our guests are
different,
but most of
them begin at

“I came here in 2011. It’s tough to find affordable housing. So, for awhile I stayed in some shelters, including the Good Shepherd. Food and housing were the big things I used at Good Shepherd. If you don’t have a roof over your head and you don’t eat, it gets even tougher to do all the other things you’re looking for, like job hunting. Good Shepherd was just a stopover for me. But it was very helpful. And I can see the difference it’s made in a lot of people’s lives. Some of them I know here personally. They said if it wasn’t for this place, they’d be in real trouble. The staff is wonderful, if you need someone to listen to you. One thing I really like here about the services is the sense of optimism. You never come here with a sense of hopelessness. There are people here who have been in the same boat that you’re in, and some of them are now volunteers. So, there is a certain degree of relatability. I think this is definitely a needed resource in the community. And I’m glad to have been one of its patrons.” Our guests are different, but most of them begin at the same place.

Everyone knows that the cost of cooking for a large family over the holidays can add up. And given that this Boxing Day our family will be preparing and serving 1500 meals, we need your financial support to make one of our largest meals of the year a success.
